Election day: politics matter but not as much as we think

Another election day.

A day when millions of Americans will breathe a sigh of relief and think “Ok, maybe it’ll be ok,” and where millions of other Americans will be despondent and thinking “It’s over. This was our last chance.”

It’s utter nonsense.

Certainly, this stuff matters.

But it’s not all that matters.

Political ads play to our fears, not to our hopes. They try to scare us. The media does the same thing. We hear how this is the most important election in history.
